Getting that perfect blush can be such a game-changer, blush is such a quick and easy addition to your makeup routine but packs a real punch. The right colour will warm you from within and give you that glow all year round. Finding the right colour isn’t always easy but the secret lies in your skin tone, so once you know what base colour your working with, actually getting your hands on the right blush colour might come easier than you think.

If you have darker skin

Go for deeper, rich fuschias and berry colours. if you’re looking for something super bold try a blush with a tangerine undertone. It’ll compliment your skin and bring out that glow!
